Well, you've probably been noticing that the media are pushing the theme of alien invasion recently. Syfy - which has become more a channel for cheap grade B Lovecraft thrillers and "reality TV" of kooks tromping through buildings whispering and looking for ghosts - has been running alien invasion themes, as have a host of other channels. Well, now it's official:
This latest folly from Elitesville actually couples NASA, the Pennsylslovakia State University, and a bunch of nitwits that probably reached their conclusions inside of a padded room. "Watching from afar," we're told, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth's atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control - and take drastic action to keep us from becoming more of a serious threat, the researchers explain."
Uh huh. Perhaps ET is worried (and who could blame him/her/it?) that the USA will sponsor NATO raids and open a branch of the Federal Reserve on their home world, and import squadrons of Dummycrooks and Republithugs to manage their economy. Doubtless this study gave Al Gore, Maurice Strong, and "thinkers" of their ilk something approaching an orgasm of relief: at last global warming has been wedded to the immanent threat of alien invasion!
All humor aside, the fact that money was wasted on this "study" - which concludes what anyone of common sense would conclude to begin with, namely that there are three possible scenarios, beneficial, neutral, and harmful, of such contact - is really masking the purpose, which I believe to be yet another attempt to keep everyone preoccupied with end-of-the-world apocalypse theater scenarios, which will be kept alive by the occasional titillating story in the major media, the sensational UFO sighting for the UFO groupies, and, while it lasts, speculations on Comet Elenin. In short, as with the DARPA story I blogged about earlier this week concerning the creation of the social factors for interstellar travel, we're looking at another piece of the same story, namely, that we are being slowly prepared for a vast transformation of society, not only by the "apocalyptic technologies of ET and interstellar travel" but for some sort of "contact event", which, if you've been reading between the lines carefully, could itself be very easily staged.
One thing, however, emerges as a clear lesson from this study: these people are nuts, and will stop at nothing in their wild speculations, their indulgence of insanity, and their attempts to corral everyone into a quiescent state of confusion and fear by constant promotion of the memes of social engineering.
The looney tunes knows no depth, including even a serious proposal from a Nobel Prize winning economist, that we all need to just pretend like we're being invaded by aliens to get the world on a war economy and thus get everything chugging along again:
....which all raises the question, once again, of the alleged statements of Dr. Wernher Von Braun to Dr. Carole Rosin, first came the Communists, then came terrorists, then would come nations of concern, then it would be asteroids, and finally, the threat of alien invasion, all of which would be used to justify putting weapons into space. Yes folks, it's that bad, and these people really are that nuts.
